West Indian Carnival Was Great

Date Posted: 2000-04-01

The West Indian Association’s much awaited Carnival Mardi Gras finally happened last Sunday, March 26th. The event, which had been scheduled to run from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Camp Foster (6th Marine Division Rd. and Stillwill Dr.), ended much earlier, but still left all attendants fully satisfied.

All military and private organizations which had been invited to join in the carnival of colorful costumes and masquerades effectively turned out at the event, to the delight of the organizers and excited watchers. Notable among them were the III MEF Band; the Far East Knights (motorcycle club); Boy Scouts America Pack 112; New Orleans Family; Teruya Najimi Kodomokai Committee (kid Eisa dancers); Hispanic American Association); Kadena Kokusai Matsuri Daiko (Taiko Drummers); Tenryu Daiki Ryukyu Goku Matsuri Daiko (Eisa dancers); Kubasaki High School Varsity Cheerleaders; Girl Scouts - Foster Lone Troop Committee; Caribbean Heritage Association and the West Indian Association.

At the end of their procession, Association members, dancers and the “Queen” of the Carnival spent some more time dancing in the streets to hot Caribbean sounds of Zouk, Salsa, Calypso and Merengue. Their President, Jamesky Mardy, expressed total satisfaction with the event, and thanked all who had participated for contributing to its success.
